41. The relationship between alanerv(®) consumption and erythrocytes' redox status in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. (Abstract)

The relationship between alanerv(®) consumption and erythrocytes' redox status in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. Stroke is a pathological condition associated with a redox imbalance. Both the acute and the post-acute phases after a stroke are characterized by a pro-oxidant state, which could be corrected through antioxidant supplementation. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the ALAnerv(®) upon the redox status of erythrocytes.For this pilot study (...) were enrolled 28 post-acute stroke patients. They were randomly divided into a control group [(-) ALA] and a study group [(+) ALA]. Patients were hospitalized for a period of two weeks. Blood samples were taken at the beginning and at the end of this period. Patients from (+) ALA group received the nutritional supplement ALAnerv(®). Catalase, SOD, GPx, GRed and GT activities were assessed on erythrocytes' lysates. Also, the total antioxidant capacity as well as the concentration of total thiols

46. Passive standing as an adjunct rehabilitation intervention after stroke: a randomized controlled trial. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Passive standing as an adjunct rehabilitation intervention after stroke: a randomized controlled trial. Early physical rehabilitation enhances functional recovery in stroke survivors. Supported standing is a common adjunctive therapeutic practice in subjects with several central nervous diseases who are unable to stand actively. Data on the effect of supported positioning on standing frames in individuals with recent stroke are scarce and contradictory.To verify if the addition of supported (...) standing practice (SSP), delivered by means of a standing frame in two durations, to conventional physical therapy (CPT), may improve motor function, autonomy, and mobility in individuals with disability due to recent stroke.After baseline assessment, 75 participants with severe disability due to stroke, all receiving CPT, were randomly assigned to adjunctive 20 or 40 min of SSP, or CPT only (control). Motor function, autonomy, and mobility were assessed before and after training, and three months

52. The consumption of alanerv® nutritional supplement and the dynamic of some inflammatory markers in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. (Abstract)

The consumption of alanerv® nutritional supplement and the dynamic of some inflammatory markers in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. Stroke is followed by an inflammatory response lasting up to several months. Moreover, many of the stroke-related comorbidities (i.e., diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and atherosclerosis) are characterized by an pro-inflammatory status.We designed this pilot study to evaluate the relation between the consumption (...) of a nutritional supplement (ALAnerv®) and the dynamic of the inflammatory status in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. The study population comprised 28 patients which were assigned into two study groups, named (-) ALA and (+) ALA. All subjects followed the same rehabilitation program. There were no significant differences in respect to the standard medication between the groups. Moreover, patients from the (+) ALA group received ALAnerv® for two weeks (2 pills/day).

Multidisciplinary rehabilitation following botulinum toxin and other focal intramuscular treatment for post-stroke spasticity. Spasticity may affect stroke survivors by contributing to activity limitations, caregiver burden, pain and reduced quality of life (QoL). Spasticity management guidelines recommend multidisciplinary (MD) rehabilitation programmes following botulinum toxin (BoNT) treatment for post-stroke spasticity. However, the evidence base for the effectiveness of MD rehabilitation (...) is unclear.To assess the effectiveness of MD rehabilitation, following BoNT and other focal intramuscular treatments such as phenol, in improving activity limitations and other outcomes in adults and children with post-stroke spasticity.
